I'm with you. The best element to me is the overgrown vegetation, but I'm just not feeling it with this picture. My search continues!

Originally I thought perhaps I could add a ghostly figure in that dark doorway, but I think I'll keep looking.

I like snapping pics of old buildings, and I'm not sure why. I've always loved doing it, though.

I’m going to revise my Halloween countdown for my iPhone. I want to try my hand at designing a good Halloween pic (I will add elements and effects through Photoshop).

Keep in mind, the “scary” stuff will be added later, but as the base photo, this one just doesn’t have the creepy haunted house vibe I’m going for.
I think it has possibilities, but you'd definitely need a long driveway, through the woods, with creepy trees taking you there!! It's going to be spooky!! 👻

That's a really good question! I always picture them old, a bit run down, and almost gloomy. I usually picture them in urban environments for some reason, while I know others picture dark country roads. What do you picture?

Waiting for Godot

By Samuel Beckett
Directed by Jennifer Tarver


Tom Patterson Theatre

June 13
to September 26
Opens June 27



Production Co-Sponsor




About The Play
“What are we doing here, that is the question,” says Vladimir as he and Estragon await their rendezvous with the mysterious Godot. The question takes on a cosmic significance as the two hapless tramps struggle to make sense of their predicament, abandoned in a universe of comic absurdity shot through with moments of nameless terror.
